The College of Arts and Science celebrated some of its most talented professors, instructors and mentors during delivery of the 2016 Faculty and Graduate Student Awards.
Each academic year during its first meeting of the faculty, the professors and administrators of the College of Arts and Science recognize excellence in teaching and research. The awards are an important part of the Arts and Science tradition, and their past and present recipients are some of the university’s most distinguished and beloved professors, instructors and mentors.
“The commitment and passion these awardees have for their fields of study and our students exemplify the mission of the College to ‘engage in significant and innovative research, scholarship and creative expression … and to offer distinguished, well-taught programs of undergraduate and graduate education in the liberal arts and sciences, and to foster service to society overall,’” said Lauren Benton, dean of the College of Arts and Science and Nelson O. Tyrone Jr. Professor of History.
“It is important to recognize their extraordinary efforts in contributing to the growth and success of Arts and Science programs and research and the positive impact on the lives of their students.”
